StampinBJ.com, #simplestamping, Perennial Birthday, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!Today is Simple Stamping Saturday and I have chosen to showcase a stamp set that I believe is a great choice for any stamper but, especially for a beginning stamper.  The reason is that Perennial Birthday as great greetings plus images that are perfect to just add a little color to.  And frankly the most frequent of cards sent are birthday cards.

I chose a simple color palette – all colors from the Subtles Color Family.  When you are first accumulating inks, choosing colors in the same color family help you to have colors that go together well.  Plus if you purchase the entire ink pad family as a bundle, you get a great storage box and you will also like the savings.  The colors I have chosen are Highland Heather, Mint Macaron and Balmy Blue.

StampinBJ.com, #simplestamping, Perennial Birthday, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!I want to share with you a simple coloring technique.  I used the ink pad with a sponge dauber to color the flowers and leaves.  You can add a little color or a lot of color depending on what you wish.
